This is the first video from the Leaving Records/Stones Throw Dual Form compilation that I profiled in the LA Weekly last week, along with a look at label bossman, Matthewdavid. “Visions” might be my favorite track on the record, partially because it reminds me of Pantha Du Prince’s Black Noise, partially because I am a sucker for a good house groove. Years of drug abuse have wired my brain this way. Take notes, college kids. One day your circuitry will be re-routed and you will find yourself praying to Berghain four times a day, in 4/4 time.
According to The Cyclist, “this project of mine, is an attempt to get to a time in electronic music, where everything sounds warmer, like with the more techno-ey tunes by throbbing gristle maybe a bit like what Geogaddi by Boards of Canada got across,but with a whole other meaning with a more danceable edge of new order. This needed to be done and needs to be done more. let’s call it Tape Throb for now.”
